The Definitive Glass of Milk Running Playlist*

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I like songs that are so bad, they’re good.  And I listen to them when I’m running because the best thing about the worst songs is that they make you want to sing along at the top of your lungs.  I had the joy of running on the beach for a couple days in a row, which always proves I’m not the runner I (sometimes) think I am.  Because it’s that much harder to get your feet going when they’re hitting sand, I needed to bring out the big guns.  I went back to some of my high school playlists for these runs.  And when I got back to DC, running under normal conditions, I practically flew.  You could say it was the beach that did it.  But I’m going to bet that playlist was a big factor as well.

So without further ado, The Definitive Glass of Milk Running Playlist*

Wait–a little more ado–no judgement, dear readers.  I’m sharing the deepest, darkest parts of my soul here…

beach run 2

Back That Ass Up – Juvenile

city run

Dog Days are Over – Florence + the Machine

Wanna Be Startin’ Something – Michael Jackson

Airplanes – B.o.B. (featuring Hayley Williams)

I’m a Slave 4 U – Britney Spears

And of course, my ending song has not, and likely will never change: Bleed it Out – Linkin Park

*Dear readers, I know I called this the definitive playlist, but you know there’s gotta be a new one before too long, right?  I just really like hyperbole.

More running playlists here, here, here, here, and here.
